CONNECT – Friendship Requires Hard Work

CONNECT – Friendship Requires Hard Work

In the Bible, we see the importance of friends for human flourishing, the selfless attitude our friendships should have, the importance of having close friends, and the importance of truth telling and reconciliation in our friendships.

Today we conclude our series called Connect: Finding True Community. As hard as we try to stay away from conflict, It always seems to find us. A lot of times, this ends up being between friends. So how do we respond, and how do we keep going when we feel like giving up.
